What is Ear Irrigation?

Millions of people suffer from earwax impaction all over the world and it ranges from all different ages. For some, the issue may come from hearing aids but for others, it can just be something they have always had trouble with. This article will talk about earwax impaction and explain how ear irrigation can help.

How to get rid of impacted ear wax

Like I said above, earwax impaction can occur from many different reasons. First of all, some people just produce more wax than others. Secondly, inserting foreign objects into the ear canal such as cotton swabs and earbuds, also exacerbates earwax impaction. There are several do's and don't's when it comes to removing your earwax safely and effectively, see the list below to learn more!

Do: see a doctor, preferably an ENT to have your ear properly assessed. The only true way to know if you have earwax impaction and how much, is to have a doctor examine your ear with an otoscope. You may also use earwax removal products and ear cleaning products such as Earwax MD®, or perform an ear irrigation.

Don't: use a cotton swab, bobby pin, or put any other objects inside the ear canal. Also don't ever do ear candling! You'll thank me when you don't have hot wax burning your ear canal.

What is Ear Irrigation?

According to an article on healthline, ear irrigation is a routine procedure used to remove excess earwax, or cerumen, and foreign materials from the ear. For optimal results when irrigating your ear, it is recommended to use ear cleaning drops, such as Earwax MD, to dissolve the wax.

For some people, simply using a standard rinsing bulb to remove the wax inside their ear canal is sufficient. However, for others with more stubborn wax, a strong rinsing system may be needed, and that is where ear irrigation comes in.

If you have severe earwax impaction, or are unaware of how severe your wax impaction may be, it is recommended to see a doctor for an ear exam. If it has been determined that you have wax impaction, you may try a home irrigation remedy such as Wax Blaster MD.
